A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

For My Little One

I never saw your twinkling eyes

Or touched your precious feet.

I never shared a tiny yawn

Or rocked you fast asleep.

I never kissed your tiny hands

Or saw your little smile.

I never held you in my arms,

But I held you for a while.

Although I never saw your face

Or heard your precious laughter,

You’re still my child whom I love

And will forever after.
